(100% cabernet sauvignon, from vineyards in Calistoga and Oakville): Good full medium ruby. Expressive, slightly high-toned aromas of blueberry, licorice pastille, mocha, coffee, black olive, minerals and crushed rock. Youthfully tight but densely packed and serious, with a piquant vein of peppery acidity enlivening the concentrated flavors of currant, minerals and spices. Finishes with outstanding rising length and a firm spine of acids and harmonious tannins. Lay this one down. I significantly underrated this wine from barrel a year ago, when it came across as greener.

The flagship wine, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon J. Daniel Cuvee is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from two sources, 73% from the Dutch Henry Canyon area in Calistoga and 27% from Vine Hill Ranch in Oakville. This wine spent 19 months in three-fourths new French oak. A sensational effort, it reveals copious notes of lead pencil shavings, blackberries, mulberries, black currants, licorice and charcoal. This beautifully crafted, full-bodied Cabernet possesses impressive delineation and a long finish with moderate tannin as well as decent acidity for vibrancy. Approachable now, it should continue to drink well for at least a quarter of a century.

Trim and spicy, offering a graceful mix of dried currant, dark berry, cedar, tobacco leaf, dried herb and crushed rock. Bordeaux-like in restraint and detail.
